The taiwanese TPE and KH maps are just awesome!
The metro expansion plans there are really impresive!

I wholeheartedly second that, not only for London but also for some other big metro systems (Moscow, Madrid, Paris, etc.); there are some here, though: http://www.geocities.com/Athens/Acro.../stations.html

I use Inkscape. The beginning was hard, but now I've learnt how to use it. It's freeware:
http://www.inkscape.org/

Besides São Paulo rail system map (subway and metropolitan railway), I've done others Brazilians maps, such as Rio de Janeiro's suburban/metropolitan rail



PS: Pedro II station is also known as Central do Brasil (Brazil's Central) station

You need to use a vector editing program. Inkscape and MS Illustrator are the easiest and most well known.

Tried to smooth out most of the kinks in the Hong Kong future map while keeping nearby stations directionally accurate... Distance outside of the city centre is a mess though.

(Just playing with an idea, nothing as nice as the one on Wiki, but more stylized.)


Geographical map for comparison

Bucharest Metro Geographical Maps (current and planned network)



They're a bit too small as PNG images, but both maps are available for download in PDF format from here.

Yes, it would, though it would probably mean heavily modifying Dristor and Crangasi stations. But the truth is I'd be impressed and delighted if they at least make the loop. They're moving like snails, especially when it comes to the metro system. All they do is talk and talk... apart from that not much was done since the fall of communism.

Btw, they're not even capable of making a good map for our tiny system... these ones are made by me out of frustration.

It's under construction, on 2011 will be the whole line but first only a section.
